Contemporary Zen (PC)

Posted to Poetry

We're all tainted with the stain of hypocrisy from birth,
So why fight it?
Is inner peace making yourself better,
Realizing life is all harmony?
Or is it more
realizing how tragically,
beautifully flawed we
all are and loving life
for its paradoxical nature of being,


Good and bad
light and Dark
good and evil
Me and You
and the weird kid sitting all alone in the corner with the lazy eye
at their true miraculous value
until they all run
together, blurring lines
and bending rules
until all the sum
of eternity
adds up
to just
